Munich city center | by Khoi Anh Dang
Located in southern Germany north of the Bavarian Alps, on the River Isar, Munich is Germany's third largest city and the most visited one after Berlin. Munich perpetuates the folklore of the "jolly Germany" rosy-cheeked, Lederhosen-wearing men singing over their super-sized beer tankards, ginger-bread architecture fresh from fairy-tale illustrations, and Gemütlichkeit (cosy, hearty hospitality). Yet, the city that displays all the conveniences of 21st-century world prosperity & gleaming german cars, flashy boutiques and glitzy nightclubs.

To be announced...
Munich Airport is the international airport of Munich. It is the second busiest airport in Germany in terms of passenger traffic behind Frankfurt Airport, and the seventh busiest airport in Europe. The airport has two passenger terminals.
Munich Airport is connected to the city by Munich suburban railway (S-Bahn) lines S1 and S8. The ride takes approximately 45 minutes to the Marienplatz station in the city centre. While the S1 runs from the airport through the north-western suburbs and reaches the city centre from the west (Central station - Marienplatz - East station), the S8 comes in from the eastern suburbs passing the stations from the opposite direction. The S-Bahn from the airport to the city runs approx. 20 hours a day with a short break between 01:30 and 04:00.
The suburb station is located in a tunnel beneath the central area. A second station called Besucherpark (German for Visitors' Park) connects the cargo and maintenance areas, long-term parking, administrative buildings and the name-giving Visitors' Park.
The munich main station (german: "Hauptbahnhof") is right in the city-centre and also at the heart of a very well thought out underground system. The railway system is a real pleasure and there are arrivals and departures to all European destinations.
One attraction of the Bavarian capital is its well-developed, efficient public transport system, embracing the combined services of the Munich transport corporation (MVG), the private bus companies operating in the city as MVG's partner, the Munich S-Bahn and the regional bus companies.
For a detailed public transport plan as well as ticket prices, you can either visit the MVV website or download the MVV mobile app to your smartphone (available in the app-store).
